I told the SA about some vibes during start-up and idling. The vibrations were very miniscule and i was being picky to be honest, but the SA straightaway agreed to check with VW with the VIN no. After checking, they confirmed me that engine mount was now replaced in my car with a newer one. (It looks different in construction and appearance).
Startup shake is gone and idle vibes hardly noticeable. Good job vw service

It seems they dont replace it unless the customer complains. In my case i did not notice any problem with vibrations until the point i read these article in tbhp and then intentionally tried all out to feel the vibes.

Hello everyone, I had posted this in a different thread, but came to know about this thread only now. Hence the repost.

My 2013 Vento 1.6 TDI HL has clocked almost 18000 kms now. Recently I had noticed an irritating scraping kind of noise occuring in short bursts, from the front when taking the car over imperfect roads and potholes. The noise disappears after certain time. Got it checked from EVM Volkswagen near Perumbavoor last week. Unfortunately the exact sound could not be replicated during the test ride. The service staff turned on and off the engine repeatedly , giving rise to a similar sound although much subdued in nature. He postulated that the sound could be due to loosened engine mount bush(something like that), and will replace it under warranty. I complied and gave the car for resolving the same. After checkup, he informed me that the engine mount is fine and the noise was caused by a loose steering mount bush(?) and this has been rectified. He said they've done a thorough checkup of the car and everything else is as good as new. Took the car for a test ride and the sound was not present. I returned extremely satisfied. Used the car for a week. Installed RD dieseltronic tuning box after a few days. Everything ran just fine.

However, today morning the sound reappeared again. I cannot find the exact terms to describe the sound. Comes from the front RHS. It occurs in the initial part of the drive. Only occurs on bad roads. But it disappears after sometime. I don't thrash my car. I use my car mainly on highways with speeds ranging from 110-150kph(only when traffic conditions permit it), with occasional aggressive gearshifts while taking off from a red light. I'm very careful over poorly constructed village roads and speed bumps. Can anyone shine some light on this issue? Should I be alarmed?
Is this due to the issue with engine mount? I had called up the service exec and informed him about the persisting sound. He insists that there's nothing to worry about and will take a look when I take the car for service due May this year.

Guys, I gave my Sep 2012 manufactured Polo Petrol for its 3rd servicing and the SA is advising that I change one of the engine mounts. Since the car just finished its 3 year warranty, it would cost me about 3k. But the SA also said that I can leave it for now.

Any issues if I don't replace the mount now?
